Hi everyone, Last semester, I completed 108 hours of hospital volunteering for credit through my college and a local hospital (~8 hours/week). I appreciated the experience and I gained a sense of what a profession in medicine would be like. However, the volunteering was rather mundane, as I was assigned a section/floor that was notorious for being "boring" to volunteers (i.e. the only duty was filling patients' water pitchers... interacting with pts was insightful but because my responsibility was so limited it became a little boring). I would rather not volunteer at the hospital again, as I would like to use that time/credit to do something else like taking a class or volunteering somewhere else in the community for credit. (I say for credit because if I volunteer for academic credit, my college arranges and pays for transportation, which is incredibly convenient/practical.) My question is, would 108 hours of clinical volunteering (at a hospital) look weak on my application? I intend on volunteering as an EMT (recently certified) in my school, which has a student-run EMS organization. It would take about ~200 hours per academic year. I was wondering if that could also account for some clinical volunteering. To be completely honest though, it mostly consists of calls from intoxicated students. Hours by themselves are superficial, but I just want to make sure I'm up to par. Should I suck it up and do a couple more semesters of volunteering?
